The Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Principles provide a global framework to guide investment decisions that can build social, environmental and economic resilience. These investment guidelines not only future-proof banks and companies; they also benefit coastal communities, advancing sustainable development where it is needed most.
Target: By 2030, the Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Principles are mainstreamed into ocean finance decisions leading to at least US$25 billion being channelled into the sustainable blue economy.
Climate risks are now increasingly recognized as financial risks. The same must be true for risks associated with degradation of our ocean’s natural assets; it’s biodiversity, habitats and ecosystems that contribute so significantly to our economies and society as a whole.
If we are to secure a sustainable blue economy, we must transition to a net zero, nature-positive global economy that supports sustainable development.
